Tioga Capital and FC Basel owner Holzmann lead a $5 million financing in an NFT business

FC Basel owner in NFT industry

Dan Holzmann, co-owner of Swiss football club FC Basel, and Tioga Capital led a $5 million round for NFT startup.

CEO Thibault Launay declined to reveal the company’s worth. Exclusible, which was founded only a year ago, is an NFT platform that works with luxury companies to build their digital asset offerings, with clients including Asprey Bugatti, Christian Lacroix, and Louis Monet.

Along with the fundraising announcement, the Lisbon-based company announced an expansion into America through the acquisition of Polycount, a metaverse development studio that has worked with McDonald’s and the Utah Jazz of the NBA.

Exclusible’s Launay would not reveal the full terms of the acquisition, but claimed it was a mix of cash and stock.

According to Launay in an email, one of the ways it aims to use the extra financing is to acquire personnel to build out its web3 customer relationship management platform.

According to the CEO’s pitch slide, enterprises using the service would be able to gain clients, increase brand engagement, and access on-chain data and analytics when selling or distributing NFTs.
